Haworth, NJ - Haworth and Demarest firefighters were called to a structure fire late Thursday night, October 22nd, that would bring mutual aid to the scene to help battle the blaze.

Shortly before 9:00 P.M., Haworth and Demarest Fire Departments were dispatched to Valley Rd. and Haworth Ave. for a reported structure fire called in by an EMT returning from a drill. Haworth PD and Chief arrived on scene to find a detached garage heavily involved behind the home at 165 Valley Rd.

A working fire was transmitted as well as a FAST Team from Dumont. Two hand lines were stretched to the rear of the home and saws opened the garage door to access the fire. Crews quickly extinguished the fire and remained on scene hitting hot spots. No injures were reported and the cause of the fire is still unknown.
